Our Virtual Author Series will feature Mort Zachter, who has written arguably the definitive biography of new Hall of Fame electee Gil Hodges. Zachter’s book, Gil Hodges: A Hall of Fame Life, explores the New York City icon who became one of the finest first basemen of all time while playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
